What Our Students Have To Say About The Programme

Products icon

Raj - Taak Marketing

“Setting up my own business was something I had planned on doing further down the line but actually it is probably one of the best things I could have done.”

Blocks icon

Louise - Sentient Marketing

“I found the information on the course about setting up as a Consultant really useful. I have taken the advice about setting up as a Sole Trader. Client work is building up and I have a regular income, so it’s all good!”

Anna - VIV Marketing

“As a graduate, you don’t know how to set up by yourself, so it isn’t even seen as an option for many students; they don’t know how to run a business. That’s why Victoria’s course is so great”

Frequently asked questions…

Do I have to be a graduate?

Marketing Mavericks is specifically tailored towards graduates who have been taught universal academic skills such as researching, analysing and interpersonal skills.

However, previous students have included 1st year Students and also those who have been in full-time or alternative work since graduating but were interested in a change to self-employment.

Do I need to have a degree in Marketing or Business?

This programme is specifically designed for a Marketing Graduate to become a Marketing Freelancer or Consultant.

If your course is related to a form of marketing, such as journalism/PR or graphic design, then you could certainly jump on board with us and learn how to go freelance in your chosen field as a specialist.

However, the programme isn’t set up to guide Graduates into other consultancy roles such as finance or HR.

I already have a freelance business, but I need to find clients and create structure. Can you help?

Yes! Stage 3 of the Marketing Mavericks programme is ready for those businesses who are set up and need to learn more about structure, accounts, IR35, GDPR and most importantly, looking after clients.
